Subject: May in the Bay Area
Generally more relaxed than the most recent East Coast spring tour, but in many instances these runs here and at Cal Expo could and would exceed those high standards that we in the east demanded.
May of 1993 was such a high water mark, and in many eyes and ears was the last great peak of this band's illustrious 30 years career.
Shoreline of this month is often overlooked by what occurred on both 5/26-27/93.
Think as this run as the very tasty appetizer and with some vigorous and inspired playing by all.
This closing show is the perfect catalyst for setting the stage, and yes another KILLER Sunday show, for what would begin the following Tuesday.
This night has one of my favorite first set of the year. It is so inspired and rocking and Jerry is loud! Phil is a monster and Vince relly has found that sweet spot in his playing s well.
The band opens with a barn burning version of Jack Straw. Next Jerry digs down deep with a sick Loser, with a raging distorted solo. I think this was the second to last run he would play Rosebud before switching to Bolt.
AON is extremely fun and very satisfying as the bad continues to increase the X-factor. Vince really find his own in this version too.
Phil being in great sprites delivers a righteous Tom Thumb Blues, that is greatly received by the faithful.
Jerry and the band respond in kind by the only Bird Song of this six show run, which is exceptional with not as much Midi that would occur in the majority of latter days versions. As many know from my reviews not my ideal preference.
The crown jewel of this inspired set is the Music Never Stopped, which is raging and features that new chord changed that they added during the end jam. It is off the hooks kids. This FOB, which was from a taping Co-Op that I was a member of, captures all this perfectly.
Set II is a textbook spring of '93 setlist. It might not inspired many to give it a spin but is stellar from start to finish. Jerry really plays one of the best late Aiko's this night. The Wave to the Wind is quite good, sorry I really liked this tune, followed by a KILLER Saint> Terrapin that is extraordinary.
Post space features a fun Miracle and then an incredible perfect reading of Days Between and then a rockin' stand alone NFA closes the set.
The Lucy in the Sky is one of the best they would ever play, not as perfect as Chapel Hill but a close second.
